WhatsApp has released a new desktop app for Windows, which loads faster and allows group video calls with up to 8 people and audio calls with 32 people.

According to WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp monitoring platform, the new app offers end-to-end encryption for messaging, media, and calls across multiple devices, improved syncing, and other new features.

In November 2021, WABetaInfo announced that the messaging platform was releasing a beta version of the new native application for Windows. The new app allows an improved experience by enhancing stability as fewer resources are applied.

The new app's interface is strikingly similar to its mobile version. Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who recently announced the birth of his third child, mentioned the new app in a recent post.

He said: "Launching a new WhatsApp desktop app for Windows. Now you can make E2E encrypted video calls with up to 8 people and audio calls with up to 32 people."

TechCrunch reports that the premium messaging platform has been focusing on improving its desktop user experience with multiple device linking, allowing users one account across several devices.
